“ Brand: Marks & Spencer / Type: Nail Polish Remover „
And so it came to pass that the M&S nail polish remover was the only bottle left in the cabinet...
I had been avoiding using this product after using once upon purchasing, as although it is commendably acetone-free this seems to be the required element for removing nail polish effectively. The strong nail polish smell is still there but this is a nail polish remover that lacks good strong effectiveness. With just a gentle squeeze the nozzle releases a good amount of liquid, and yet is has taken me at least one blot per nail - I would view a good remover as needing one blot per 2 or 3 nails. The M&S stuff does do the job eventually but it takes a frustratingly long time to get there.
One aspect that I would give praise for is the fact that this remover does get rid of all traces of colour left on your nails once the job is done. Some stronger removers don't quite erase the entire tint of the colour despite getting the overall job done faster but the M&S product leaves no faint stains.
The M&S nail polish remover is very reasonaly priced at £2, but and savings made are quickly decimated by the cost in using so many cotton pads/tissues for complete removal!
Marks and spencer nail polish remover
A recent weekend away found me with no nail varnish remover and nail polish to remove. Thankfully, there were shops, so a quick trip into arks and Spencer found me buying this.
I had never before bought Marks and Spencer nail polish remover but given that I usually find the Marks and Spencer products effective, I was in no doubt that it would probably be £2 well spent for 200 ml of the stuff. It promises to gently remove all traces of nail varnish, and is acetone free so is probably going to be gently.
The product comes in a plastic bottle with a rather plain label on the front just telling me what it is, and some instructions and information on the back. Through the clear plastic bottle, the product, the product looks slightly orange but when I lift the lid and put some of the product onto cotton wool, it is perfectly cleae.
The product does smell as I expect nail polish remover to smell, but not too strong as some similar products.
It comes easily out of the bottle and the bottle doesn't need any squeezing. However, be careful because if it is left tipped up too long then too much of the product will come out.
To use the product, simply moisten cotton wool with the product and wipe the nail from cuticle to ends. This one application seems to be generally sufficient to remove light colours, although for darker colours, a few applications are necessary. As with all nail polish removers, it's best to make sure there is plenty of the product on the cotton wool. If the cotton wool is too dry then it will be necessary to keep wiping the nails to remove all last traces of nail varnish.
It is available instore and online at www.marksand spencer.co.uk
**So would I buy it again?...**
The nail varnish remover is very effective at doing just as it promises- gently removing nail varnish. Although it takes a couple of wipes to remove dark colours, the colour is removed easily without any hard rubbing required.
It is reasonably priced and although i don't like the smell, i don't like the smell of any nail polish remover, so it's no worse than any other!!
I would definitely buy this one again, and my next trip to Marks and Spencer could find e stocking up on the next bottle.
Thanks for reading.
